The downside to a shorter (height) sump is you then can't do quite so much wet/dry functionality - it requires a certain amount of height above the water level for the dry portion. I agree it makes maintenance trickier in a smaller cabinet, though.

The water pressure you're dealing with really isn't much...I'd just DIY the silicone. If you had a 100 gallon sump...then maybe more attention to detail would be required...
